I know that means nothing for Epstein, but I'm just saying past success is not a guarantee of future performance. There's really a lot of Kool-Aid drinking going on with Epstein. I expect that from Cubs fans, but the media cheerleading has gotten embarrassing. And it's even more embarrassing that some Sox fans are drinking the Kool-Aid as well.
Epstein has a honeymoon like Ive never seen before considering the resources behind him. The fans and media are not expecting much till near the end of his contract. Hes in the sweetest spot I can think of.
